The concept of phonological awareness has had an increasing importance during the last few decades. The phonological awareness is crucial to the development of reading and writing, and it develops from simpler skills to the more complex. Many researches have been done on this topic, and the school system itself has become aware of the importance of this concept, making its application in practice visible. The main objective of the research was to study the development and status of phonological awareness of pre-school children (age 3 – 6), and in the process check for possible gender differences as well as determine which tasks were solved the most successfully and which least successfully. The results show a positive correlation between the development and status of phonological awareness and age (at age 5 74% children exhibit phonological awareness). Girls tend to outperform boys but gender differences decrease with age. The task of combining syllables into words was the easiest, whereas rhyme production was the most difficult in all age groups. Recognition of initial phonemes was easier than of final ones. Further research of this kind should be repeated on a larger number of respondents and kindergartens in order to draw a more precise conclusion. However, these data are intended to contribute to the awareness of the need to stimulate the development of skills in the phonological domain relevant to the acquisition of reading skills.
